My wife and I stayed at The Hotel Modern over the Thanksgiving weekend. We enjoy staying at boutique hotels over chains when given the opportunity. The Hotel Modern fit right in with the better boutique hotels we've stayed in.
The overall feel of the hotel is clean, simple and as the name would suggest "modern". We stayed in one of thier smallest rooms. It was well apointed and didn't feel cramped. We didn't eat in the restaurant but a bartender at a local bar recommended it unsolicited.
The front desk service was superb. My wife is a vegetarian. We asked one of the front desk workers about some walking distance restaurants that would work for her. He gave suggestions for our dinner but said he would check with his vegetarian roommate. Later, as we were leaving, he came running out of the front door and handed us a list of restaurants that his roommate had suggested. That's great service above and beyond.
We found the location to be perfect. A nice walk, or short cab ride in either direction put you square in the heart of the French Quarter or the Garden District.
We would gladly stay at The Modern Hotel again.
